In the DjVu applet, it looks as if the fold-out map is a lot smaller than the other pages. I assume the same camera was used, but zoomed out to capture the entire map. This means the true resolution (dots per inch of paper) is so much lower. This is hardly satisfying (it makes the smaller text impossible to read and it doesn't give the reader any idea of how large the map really is). But still, it is better than the totally missing fold-outs that I have seen in one old book on Google Print, http://print.google.com/print?hl=en&id=cQRQF9tuPWEC&dq=dampmaskinen&prev=http://print.google.com/print%3Fq%3Ddampmaskinen&lpg=PP1&pg=PT19&printsec=0

This is one of the longest urls I have ever seen.

Can anyone show one of the best satellite photos on the net. They always say you can read a cigarette pack from space but I have yet to see an image that fine.

The Birdman is watching you.
